Trust me when I say diving into this next one is as far from a mistake as can be. Mistakes comes from Australian production luminary Basenji, and it even features fellow Down Under talent Tkay Maidza on fierce captivating pop vocals. Flume and What So Not like grandiose and majestic future trap vibes ooze aplenty from this exultant charging masterpiece. Basenji engulfs us into a world of orchestral lavish, beat thundering splendor on Mistakes, which is accompanied by a lyric video you can watch below. You can also stream the single via Spotify, here.

I’ve been such a huge fan of Australian producer Motez ever since I encountered his brilliant remix of my favorite Flight Facilities song, Claire de Lune, several years ago. To date, it’s still one of my top favorite remixes. Motez takes a dark and blistering turn on a spectacular new original named Down Like This, an explosion of pure fire featuring rap vocals by Australia’s fast rising hip hop sensation, Tkay Maidza. Her biting delivery is the perfect match for Motez’s warbling, dirty bass popping spectacular. Down Like This is an electrifying jolt, and it leaves me wired and ready for the producer’s forthcoming EP. Down Like This will be available to purchase on February 19th via Sweat It Out!.

If you haven’t heard the new Tkay Maidza yet, get ready for some wicked goodness from the quickly rising Australian based hip hop artist. We’ve been following along with Tkay for some time now, comparing her in the early days to both Azealia Banks and Angel Haze, but it would seem in the end, it’s highly likely that her star might shine bright than either of them. Especially if she continues to dish out tunes like Ghost, a fiery combination of melodic hooks, trappy electronica, and rapid fire rapping. And even more so if she continues to collaborate with George Maple, What So Not, and Baauer. They’re all involved on this massive tune, which will be on Tkay Maidza’s new EP coming soon via Downtown. Stream Ghost on Spotify above and Soundcloud below.

Not to make any controversial statement at all, since IHM is not about that sort of thing, but while certain edgy, originally ground breaking female rap artists are much more focused on creating tabloid fodder, Australia based Zimbabwe hip hop artist Tkay Maidza has been turning heads a plenty with song after fantastic song, each one showcasing a wondrous versatility. While early tracks reminded me of Azealia Banks with on point staccato rapping, Tkay Maidza has since proven that she’s quite the R&B and electropop artiste too. New slamming track M.O.B., produced by Elk, is a blend of both her rapping skills and some fantastically uplifting EDM styled production. M.O.B, is off Tkay’s highly anticipated debut album, due to drop later this year via Dew Process / Universal Music Australia. Tkay Maidza will be performing at SXSW this year. Hopefully I’ll be able to catch her live there.

Australia based Zimbabwe native hip hop artist Tkay Maidza seemed to be the Down Under’s answer to New York’s Angel Haze and Azealia Banks when we first heard her early tunes, but in the interim, she’s certainly set herself apart with some of her versatility. There’s no doubt in my mind her star’s going to shine even brighter as we close out the year. Off her recent mixtape comes her latest single, Switch Lanes, produced by Paces, a chiming, captivating pop and hip hop chimera, full of sparkling chimes and hooking melody. Watch her cute new animated video for the terrific song below. I can’t help but wonder if the undersea dolphin moments are a jab at Azealia?

Australian based Zimbabwe rapper Tkay Maidza has some mad skills when it comes to spitting out verses, and she’s understandably been compared very often to America’s Azealia Banks. That comparison arises yet again on Imprint, her sick new collaboration with OWSLA producer Must Die!. Imprint will be on the producer’s album Death & Magic, out September 30.

Rising Australia based Zimbabwe native hip hop artist Tkay Maidza is a name you’ll likely be hearing a lot more in the near future. Some consider her Down Under’s answer to our Azealia Banks. She first caught my attention with Brontosaurus, featuring Badcop, a year ago, which certainly makes the Azealia comparison logical (stream below). However, she demonstrates some major versatility guesting on a new track named Wishes, a collaboration with producers Swick and Lewis Cancut, both Australian themselves. The glistening electronic song fizzes with bubbly, fun effervescence. It’s the first track unveiled from a “Secret Songs compilation” series featuring original, new music from producers all over. Tkay Maidza also dropped a new tune a week ago that goes back to a more frenetic, playful rap style. Finish Them is produced by Bok Bok. Find it below Brontosaurus.
